What is Faith and How Does it Work? by Kathy Zimmer

Do you think Donald Trump or Robert Kiyosaki have faith? Do they get up every morning and struggle with deciding whether or not to take action that day to drive their businesses forward?

How are they able to get up every morning and not have to deal with managing themselves in order to take the actions they need to take? It’s because their personal philosophies or beliefs are programmed for success and the creation of wealth. You know this by their results. Before it showed up in their results, their beliefs were evident in their thoughts, words and actions. They both believed they could succeed and they did. Whether they realized it or not, they had faith that the results they desired would show up. Simple enough, right?

Your belief dictates your action or inaction

Your thoughts, words and actions are what causes your faith to grow. As it says in Scripture…”we’ve all been dealt a measure of faith” and “faith without works is dead.” It’s up to you to decide where you want to place your faith. Don’t worry if your faith is very small at first. You do have it and it will grow. Do you want your faith to grow in the areas of success, prosperity or the creation of wealth? Do your thoughts, words, and actions support your true desires or your “definite major purpose?” Or do they support procrastination, excuses, and negativity? Whatever you “support” is really where you’re placing your faith.

Faith is a real substance

What kind of substance? Faith is a creative force that goes out into the spirit realm and things begin to happen. You direct it where you want it to go by your thoughts, words and actions. It can work for you or against you. Some people think if you’re not having good success, then you don’t have faith, or you’re not using your faith. What it means is that you’re not using your faith for what you really desire. You’re using your faith for and have more faith in the things you don’t desire. Like your presumed inability to succeed, for instance. That takes some faith to believe that year after year, decade after decade. Of course it’s misdirected faith, but it’s still faith.

Use faith and build a blueprint for success

If you’ve used your faith in the wrong areas for a long time, you’ve developed a certain set of beliefs about yourself or your ability to succeed. If you’re struggling at your networking business, for instance, you may believe that success is hard to obtain. You may think it’s easy for others, but not for you.

All you need to do is to build a new blueprint (or belief) about yourself…one of success, rather than failure…one of a professional mindset, rather than the mindset of an amateur. If you SEE yourself as one who can succeed, you will do those income producing actions, rather than procrastinating, making excuses, and selling yourself short. An eagle not only has a desire to soar, it is designed to soar. So it is with you. You have a desire to succeed, and you are designed to succeed! Use your thoughts, words and actions to SEE yourself successful. Then you are using your faith for what you want, rather than what you don’t want. Keep it up for a while, and you’ll build a new set of beliefs about yourself and your ability to succeed. You will have created a new “blueprint for success” on the inside of you. No more struggling trying to manage yourself. You are now programmed for success.

Og Mandino, the author of the great book, “The Greatest Salesman in the World” said that “it all starts with a decision.” This means a decision to use your faith for what you really want instead of using it for what you don’t want. If you’re feeling discouraged, don’t worry, because he also said, “you can have a fresh start any moment you choose.”

To your success,
